Pasting tabbed/ indented text

  1. I am new to WordPress. I do not know HTML. I am simply trying to paste tabbed/ indented text, i.e.

    Line 1
    Line 2
    Line 3

    I have tried using Paste from Word and either I lose the indenting or the text is indented but there are extra lines between items that I cannot get rid of. I have tried many other ways to try and get them to work.

    Is there a simple plugin or tool I can use so I can paste text and have it keep the indenting/ tabs? I have searched this forum and Google and cannot find an easy answer.

  2. Visual editor > http://en.support.wordpress.com/editors/#visual-editor
    HTML editor > http://en.support.wordpress.com/editors/#html-editor

    Blog editors and wordpress processors do not work the same way. Microsoft WORD is not compliant with web standards. If you have been copying and pasting text from elsewhere without using either icon 5 or icon 6 in Row 2 of the visual editor, please see here so you know how to do this correctly in the future. http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/#pasting-text

    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.COM blogs and we cannot install individual plugins into them.
